IMAGES FOR THE BIANNUAL SERIES PUBLISHED BY NEIMAN-MARCUS CALLED 'THE ART OF FASHION,' A MULTIPLE PAGE ADVERTISING INSERT OF THE STORE'S TOP FASHION DESIGNERS PUBLISHED IN VOGUE AND OTHER MAGAZINES.  THE FIRST SERIES WAS PHOTOGRAPHED BY RICHARD AVEDON IN 1994.  THIS SERIES WAS FOR SPRING 2017.

EACH PHOTOGRAPHER CHOSEN TO PHOTOGRAPH THE SERIES IS ALLOWED COMPLETE ARTISTIC FREEDOM WITHIN BUDGET PARAMETERS.   ONCE IT WAS DECIDED WE'D SHOOT IN LOS ANGELES I STARTED TO THINK WHAT THAT MEANT TO ME.  I PHOTOGRAPHED THESE IMAGES AT THE APPROACH RUNWAY OF LAX, THE WATER'S EDGE OF LOS ANGELES HARBOR, A PETROL PLANT LANDSCAPED WITH BOUGAINVILLEAS, AND CALLED IT 'BLUE SKIES.'
